Winter setting in

“People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.”
- Anton Chekhov

"Winter Setting In" - watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm - Maree©
Size - 11" x 8" unframed

Although the lawn in my garden is still thick and green from all the rain we've had, the veld and roadside is starting to show the effects of Winter - all the Cosmos is gone and the tall thatching grass is yellow and dry, just waiting for the first careless cigarette to be flicked out of a car window - this Black Wattle tree still hasn't recovered from the ravages of last year's fires and got a second dose when the property owner did his fire-break this week. Pity, but fire-breaks are a necessary evil if we are going to be protecting our properties from these, sometimes dangerous, fires.

ITEM ID : WinterSettingIn
PRICE - R850.00 including postage in South Africa


  1. Painting and blogging on your birthday, Maree! Happy birthday! Your autumn and winter paintings are lovely! It is a pity that your rainy season is over and the fire hazard will be large again, a situation that we face in summer! At the moment the blue flag hanging at the gate is a welcome sight, as we sometimes have yellow, orange or red which are fire warnings.

  2. Thank you Marie, both for the comment and the birthday wishes! And I don't think our rain is over yet - was very cloudy and thundery this afternoon... have a great day!
